Book Club – The Iliad by Homer
The Iliad by Homer. 576 pages
One of the foremost achievements in Western literature, Homer’s Iliad tells the story of the darkest episode in the Trojan War. At its center is Achilles, the greatest warrior-champion of the Greeks, and his refusal to fight after being humiliated by his leader Agamemnon.
*Special Note – Since our book club will be discussing The Iliad at our January meeting, members might want to know about an upcoming public television program.
On November 20th, the New York Theatre Workshop will present “An Iliad” on Channel 13 from 10:00-11:45 pm. This production was adapted from Homer’s Iliad and stars Denis O’Hare (a co-adaptor) with Sigourney Weaver hosting.
